Arm Lift in Ottawa

Sagging skin can be a problem anywhere, and the arms are no different. As a result, more and more patients are undergoing arm lift surgery, also known as brachioplasty, to give their arms a tighter, more athletic look.

Dr. Ian MacArthur is a Top Rated, Board Certified Plastic Surgeon in Ottawa who can help you achieve the aesthetic results you desire.

Beautiful, well-contoured upper arm

Excess skin on the arm is usually due to either age or weight loss. Over time we produce less collagen and elastin in our skin, which can lead to laxity and sagging. Similarly, the skin does not tighten back up if a patient has undergone significant weight loss. In both cases, performing an arm lift is the most effective treatment for providing a beautiful, well-contoured upper arm.

What is an Arm Lift?

Brachioplasty surgery removes excess skin from the arms between the elbow and armpit while camouflaging the scar inside the arm.

Arm lift surgery is a safe and effective treatment to remove all excess skin in the upper arm. This procedure results in a scar that runs from the elbow to the armpit and sometimes along the side of the chest. The forearms are not treated. The location of the brachioplasty scar resides on the inside of the arm, towards the back. After a full year of maturation, arm lift scars typically look like faint, thin lines that blend in with the rest of the arm skin.

If arm lift surgery is being considered after significant weight loss, a patient’s weight needs to be stable for at least 6 months before surgery. This is required to avoid wound-healing complications.

The Procedure

Arm lift surgery is done under a general anesthetic at a private surgery center or hospital and takes 2 to 3 hours.

This procedure is done as day surgery, meaning patients may go home once they have recovered from the anesthetic. There are large, compressive dressings present on each upper arm. No drains are required with this surgery.

Patients typically take 1 to 2 weeks off work, depending on their job. There is to be no heavy lifting or strenuous exercise for 4 weeks after surgery to allow the incisions to heal.
